Aussie Entrepreneur Can Retire At The Age Of 15 Thanks To Huge Business Success
The mum of a 10-year-old entrepreneur said her daughter could probably retire in five years because of her business success.
Pixie Curtis is the daughter of Aussie PR queen Roxy Jacenko and she's proved to be just as business savvy as her mum.
Her Pixie's Bows business was set up for her when she was just a baby, however she apparently had the vision for what she wanted to sell when the fidget spinner craze kicked off a few years ago.
That's when Pixie's Fidgets came into the fold and now both empires sit under the umbrella of Pixie's Pixs.
That brand now sells a range of toys, games and children's items and the 10-year-old is in charge of product testing and ensuring 'everything runs smoothly'.
Roxy's role in the company is to handle product development, marketing and branding.
When Pixie's Pix launched, they raked in $200,000 in the first month and they sold out of their stock in the first 48 hours.
Their success has continued since then and during an interview with Stellar magazine, Roxy told Pixie: "You won't need to worry; you can retire at 15 the way you're going."
Can you imagine getting to retire before you've even got your learners driving license or been to your Year 10 formal?
Obviously Pixie could just keep working and continue to rake in the dough.
Who knows, she might launch a new company when she's older and take more ownership of the operations.
Roxy praised the 'entrepreneurial spirit' that lives in Pixie and has been so amazed to see her approach business decisions with such brilliance.
"I never had it, although it was drummed into me that I had to succeed," she said. "When I was 14, I got a job at McDonald's because that's what you did back in my day. So, I guess to me the biggest thing is her drive as an entrepreneur.
"Yes, I've enabled it, but she's still got it, which is for me the most rewarding part."
Not only has Roxy fostered her daughter's drive to become a businesswoman, she's also rewarded it.
Earlier this year, the mum bought her daughter a gorgeous Mercedes Benz vehicle as a gift for all her success. The car can cost up to $270,000 if you get all the trimmings.
She told news.com.au: "I'm super proud of her and her brother [Hunter].
"Pixie's idea to add fidgets and sensory toys to her bow business, which many people said wouldn't be popular, has been a huge success.
"The help both her brother and her give me on the buying (every night we work on new style selections and argue over it), the packing, the restocking, goes well beyond their years so the new car was a reward."
